    Default Only a week and a half till the school holidays ...

    So anyone freaking out about school holidays yet?

    This is my very first working school holiday as a childminder and I have got:

    2 five year old's (boy and a girl), an 8 year old girl and an 11 year old girl. I don't have any under fives as yet and just for these 2 weeks I am glad!

    I am meeting up with a childminder friend of mine most days and we worked out on our busiest day we will have 7 kids between us:
    2,3,4,5,5,8 and 11

    So how many have you lot got?

    I have between four and five each day of the hols. I have planned a big day out on each Wednesday and lots of trips to softplay, the park and the library on the others! Also got loads of easter crafts in so we can make lots of nice things too! Hopefully the weather will stay dry and we can spend alot of time in the garden too.

    I normally have 4 over the hols but will have 7 both both easter wks, kinda makes me housebound apart from walks to the park as 2 are too little for adventure playground and cant get 7 in my car but Hubby is off work the first wk YAY he can transport my own two so hopefully we can get out to the farm and ofcourse as he has to come with me he can help with our own kiddies leaving me to concentrate on a buggy and 4 walkers.
    Busy losing the will to live mwuahahahaha!
